Op-ed in PA daily: Palestinians should not let their children die and then celebrate them as heroes 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 16, 2016
Headline: "Do not take part in the execution of our children by Israel!"
Op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Committee member and regular columnist for the official PA daily
      “The alignment of the Israeli occupation, the ISIS of the Jewish settlers, and the terror of the occupation state are the first and last to be responsible for the fact that our men, women, young, and children of both sexes are rushing to the battle field and toward the inevitable end. However, responsibility also rests with the political parties, factions, and local and Arab partisan media outlets, which diminish the terror and crimes of the occupation’s officers, soldiers, and settlers, ‘Israel’s ISIS’, and at the same time magnify the image of the Palestinian victim… If the young of my land think, they will discover the truth about those who are riding the wave. If they look deeply into the situation in the Arab world, they will see how the young always have served only as fuel and steps on the ladder for the rising of ‘professional politicians.’… Defending our children and young is a limitless national responsibility, and it should not be written in history that we sat there and looked at them bleeding until they died as Martyrs (Shahids), and then the factions competed among themselves to see who would succeed in adopting them [as theirs], and posters were printed and we walked in their funeral processions, and finally returned to our homes, concerned about the well-being of our children and sons, thinking and examining thousands of ways to protect them and distance them from the occupiers and settlers’ blood-lust cycle.”

The term "so what" is a reference to a hashtag appearing on Palestinian social media as a slogan used to encourage Palestinians to continue rioting, throwing rocks and using violence against Israelis. "#so_what" is a Palestinian response that makes light of Israel's alleged crimes, showing that Palestinians don't care. It also implies that no matter what Israel does, the Palestinians will continue not to care, and they will continue to riot, throw rocks, carry out stabbing attacks etc. The words refer to a video that went viral, showing an elderly Palestinian man arguing with Israeli soldiers. A soldier points to rioting Palestinians, saying: "They're throwing rocks at us." The old man replies: "So what, let them throw rocks."

PLO: Palestinian children who throw rocks are “fulfilling their national duty” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 4, 2015
     “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners [and Released Prisoners'] Affairs emphasized in a notice it published yesterday [Nov. 3, 2015] afternoon that the law for stricter punishment of Palestinian children that was approved in the Israeli Parliament (Knesset) is part of a series of racist, vengeful laws… The Commission noted that what was approved by the [Israeli] Parliament regarding the increase of the punishment of minors accused of rock-throwing to 10 years, and [the establishment of] a minimum punishment of two years, is in contradiction with all international conventions and treaties, which speak clearly of the need to respect children’s rights, and treat them in a special manner. The Commission clarified that the goal of the series of laws enacted by the occupation government and the leaders of its gangs – politicians and military people alike – is to kill the Palestinian childhood, to deter children from fulfilling their national duty toward their land and holy sites, and to discourage them from resisting this occupier.”
